Hackers responsible for stealing nude photos from celebrities have already allegedly hit actress Mila Kunis, and have now targeted “Match Point” star Scarlett Johansson.
According to website TMZ Mila Kunis recently joined a list of female celebrities who have had their phones hacked and some of their photos stolen. A separate report also indicates that Scarlett Johansson has asked the American intelligence service FBI to investigate the matter.
Representatives of Mila Kunis and Scarlett Johansson were not available for comments, and no details were released by the FBI on the request by Johansson.
According to TMZ four photos of Kunis have been stolen with one of them showing Justin Timberlake messing around striking a pose, and another one joking around wearing a pink pantie on his head.
Some cell phone messages which were allegedly sent to Kunis by Timberlake are also included in the leaks.
A report by TMZ which appeared early this year indicated that the FBI was on the hunt for those responsible for the ongoing hacking scandal.
It is however not clear why so many nude photos of celebrities are being found, and why so many keep naked photos of themselves on their cell phones. This has led to rumors that celebrities are themselves behind the alleged leaks and releases, and using unethical means by which to promote themselves. Johansson seeking help from the FBI would seem to contradict those rumors though.
Internet security advisors have given some helpful advice to celebrities; the best way to avoid a leak of naked photos being hacked from cell phones is to stop taking nude photos and storing them on their vulnerable mobile phones.
